Its time for What's Up Wednesday!
What I'm Reading I didn't really read this week. I'm not sure how that happened. I read a few random pages here and there but I was always interrupted before I got very far. I did read the first lines of about a dozen different books thanks to this article on YaBuccaneers! I tried to read more of "Two Years Before the Mast" and I came to the realization that I like this book as a reference book (I have a lot of sailing in my WIP) but I do not enjoy it when I'm in the mood for something with a plot. I'm going to set it aside for now but I'm sure I will be going back to the first chapters for reference. They are full of nautical info. My new chapter a day classic is going to be The Great Gatsby. I wanted something short so I can feel accomplished before I move on to the next classic on my list, Anna Katerina.
What I'm Writing Does mental writing count? This week was insanely busy. I wanted to write so much I couldn't think of anything else but the only day I had time was the day my ancient laptop decide it was to tired to think. I have spent countless hours mulling over both of my books though and I have four novel ideas to choose from for NaNo. I also have little poems and lists of words and names scattered through out the house...
What Inspires Me Right Now Tea with honey sounds inspiring at the moment.
What Else I've Been up To Everything. Or at least if feels like it. I went to a Writer's conference over the weekend. It was wonderful to meet other writers and hear about their experiences. I wanted to write a piece about it to post today but I have a head cold and didn't get that far... hopefully soon. The rest of the week included attending a birthday party, taking my daughter to dance lessons, taking my son to homeschool p.e. class, LegoCon (a homeschool lego competition) making/leading a craft for story hour, running or walking in the evenings and trying to keep my two year old out of trouble. That last one is probably the hardest thing I do. I just had to pause writing this post because he somehow got his head wedged between the wall and his brother's bed and was stuck upside down. Of course, being nap time, he was suppose to be in his own bed.... hmm.
What have you been up to?
